LFC forever - glad you managed to get through all that reading. I'm going to do something about it in the new year - too busy at the moment.
Sounds like you've been very sensible, and I'm sure you'll get back to where you were eventually. Try running before Jan if you want - do one short one a week to start with midway between massage sessions. You could even do it on the treadmill (what am I saying ?) It'll be warm in the gym.
Trying to think how good cycling would be for it. Not sure. I wouldn't get out of the saddle, anyway.
It's a vile injury that seems to strike some people for a very long period indeed. My sports massage therapist said mine was the worst case of it she had ever seen.
You need to try to discover what the cause of it might have been. Not always obvious. Suddenly increasing training intensity, especially downhill running? Your shoes?
